Understated, elegant, but sporty, the tenniscore aesthetic is one to watch, and likely won't be going anywhere anytime soon. And thanks to a color palette that includes a lot of whites and ivories (as well as greens, yellows, and blacks), this trend is one that is perfect for a bachelorette party. You don't even have to be actually hitting the courts to pull it off. Tennis-inspired outfits, like cute tennis skirts and flirty tennis dresses, are ideal for a variety of different activities and events, and while white pieces are right for the bride, anyone can get in on this using other colors.

If you want to pull off the tenniscore trend, you'll need at least a few of the below pieces. Shop them now for a bachelorette party, pickleball date, or even honeymoon activities.

What Is the Tennis Aesthetic?

Tenniscore is exactly what it sounds like: clothes and accessories that are inspired by clothes traditionally worn when playing tennis. Think crisp white polos, flared skorts, preppy athletic dresses, and v-neck sweaters draped casually over your shoulders. The tennis aesthetic has become extremely popular on social media sites like Pinterest and TikTok, where any quick search for #tenniscore will quickly lead you to hundreds of thousands of outfit ideas and options. Inspired by the style of royal icons like Princess Diana and Kate Middleton, as well as old-school '70s and '80s tennis style, tenniscore has become even more relevant thanks to Wimbledon and country club scenes from shows like The Summer I Turned Pretty. It also plays into the quiet luxury trend that has taken hold, offering up an effortlessly sporty but chic vibe that everyone wants to embody.

Cute tennis outfits work with a wardrobe that is surprisingly simple and functional. Athletic dresses and skorts are versatile and comfortable, while options like preppy sweaters and logo sweatshirts take us into chillier weather. You can also have fun with accessories, like slouchy white socks, comfy sneakers, and some jewelry to elevate the overall look.

Tenniscore Outfits For the Bride

Whether you're having a tennis-themed bachelorette party or you just want to get in on this big trend, there are tons of options for the bride who wants an aesthetic tennis outfit. White is a huge part of tenniscore, so there's no shortage of dresses, shirts, skirts, and sweaters. Add some pops of color with navy blue stripes or green edging.

The exercise dress is one of the biggest trends out there lately, and this GapFit dress takes the look to another level with a halter neckline and polo collar.

Cute Tennis Outfits for Everyone

If you're attending a bachelorette party as a guest, you'll probably want to avoid wearing anything white. Although white is a pretty popular color for tennis outfits, you still have plenty of options. Look for shades like green and blue, or opt for something fun and bright. Brides who aren't into wearing all white can go for these choices as well.

Wear this with a flared tennis skirt for the cutest outfit.
